I hate how the summoning animation shows that it's green, and then zooms in on its eye and you can see the skin around its eye is blue and then the card itself is blue and it was only ever blue or black in the anime

Yeah, the green colored skin is dumb.

Exactly, it's puzzling. I think I'll start asking them to fix the color in surveys.

Why is it green in the cinematic tho?

Konami should have released this lovely counter trap. It would be a fantastic support for galaxy eyes!! I wonder if we will ever get tachyon dragon monsters in DL!!??

You need to use the damage step trick: there are cards that increase your monsters’ attack during that window when his effect can’t be activated. Here’s a screenshot for an example. Surprise him with a buff to your monster that takes his card down.

Not a chance. It has zero protection: these galaxy and photon bosses: getting pawned by backrows left and right. That's how I farmed Kite Tenjo.

What are some decks that are “character decks” with good backrow, then? Not necessarily meta, specifically looking for character accurate.

There are none, characters don't need more than 1 trap card because they have plot armor

Even someone like Odion, whose deck is traps only, only used trash traps

Kite Tenjo is a cheater because he always has this card in his first turn.

I find him better than Atem & Jaden/Yubel. I am much more angrier when I see Atem putting Slifer onto his field without tribute and wtf with that Neo Spacian Onslaught?? I don't call that "summon" they can just put broken monsters onto the field for free.

He doesn't always have this card in his opening hand, because he sometimes searches for it.

Yeah that's the thing though. Either he has this card in opening hand, or he has the searcher in opening hand.

In the end the result is always the same, he has this card turn 1.

Not always. He definitely has several search mechanics to put it into his hand. Combine that with all the ways he has to bring it out, it is not that surprising.
It has no animation, wtf...

When do we get Neo- though? I think it's only like 12 episodes after Shark Drake's appearance so it can't be that far

Summon this card using atum and use the banishing effect to revert it original atk

Big beater with no protection. Expensive summoning. Boring.

it has battle protection though

so saying it has absolutely no protection is wrong, since it can save itself from destruction in battle by banishing itself and the enemy, which in turn also negated the attack

Every single deck in the meta is running at least 3 outs to this, most several more because of toolbox
